Mayan Maths

Y5C have looking at the Mayan number system and undertook some Mayan maths as part of our Mexcellent project. The Mayan mathematics system was way ahead of its time. They used a symbol for zero, a dot to represent one and a bar to represent 5.


 

We even went on to undertake some Mayan multiplication!
